I love Melanie Shankle. She is a beautiful conglomeration of so many things I appreciate, and each of them is obvious in these pages. She's profoundly insightful, witty, relatable, wide open, and passionate about Jesus. She likes people, and I like that in a person. In this book, Melanie lives her life with us and invites us to live our lives with her. Relish this ride, sister! You won't be sorry you took it.
--Beth Moore, New York Times bestselling author and Bible study teacher

What happens when you read a book that's one part Blue Like Jazz, one part Anita Renfroe, and two parts Big Mama? You laugh too loud, nod till your neck hurts, and throw your hands up with a relieved yes! Simply put: I love Melanie Shankle, and every page of this book shimmers with her fabulous voice, honest hilarity, and the light of a Savior that makes even the wackiest, hardest days of motherhood somehow glimmer with something grand. Sparkly Green Earrings - the perfect accessory to be dazzled by grace and more than a glint of God.
--Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of the One Thousand Gifts

Melanie has the rare gift of making you embarrass yourself laughing while considering the deeper undertones of each story. I don't know a mama who would say that parenting is exactly what she thought it would be all the time. It's a delicate dance we do, this balancing of the ordinary and the holy, and often we get it wrong. The ability to pull the humanity out and examine it in the wake of what really matters is not an easy task, but it's one Melanie has done exquisitely. As writers, we pray our words string together in a way that connects our flesh to the Storyteller, and I'm so honored to have my endorsement on a book that does that as well as this one does. I dare you to read it without laughing, without seeing your own life embedded in its corners. You're in for a journey with a beautiful woman who, in my estimation, has a lot more light catching to do around a million more turns. Her wit, humility, and true writing ability will make you want to chase her as she goes.
--Angie Smith, Author of I Will Carry You and What Women Fear

In her memoir, Melanie uses an irresistible combination of dab the-corner-of-your-eye emotion and laugh-so-loud-you-scare-the-cat humor. Every chapter of Sparkly Green Earrings - actually, every page - is a splendid journey through sudden, side-splitting laughter and utterly relatable tears...and back to laughter again. She captures every fear, crazy notion, nervous breakdown, and desperate moment of new motherhood so expertly and hilariously that I actually wondered if she'd tapped into my memory of having my first child. And all throughout the book, as Caroline grows and starts school (and has a very short stint in Brownies), Melanie establishes just how much her faith has guided and propelled her through this miraculous privilege known as motherhood. Her memoir is nothing short of a delight.
--Ree Drummond, New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Melanies writing is insightful, hilarious, and full of encouragement for the journey. Sparkly Green Earrings is refreshment for the soul. For all the reasons thousands of people love her blog, you will be smitten with her book. Mostly because you will fall in love with Melanie through its pages, and more important, with the God she serves.
--Kelly Minter, Bible study author, writer, and speaker

Meet the Author

Melanie Shankle

Melanie Shankle was in fourth grade when her teacher asked her to read a story she had written to the entire class. Even though that story now seems a little silly and simplistic, it made the students in Mrs. Rice's homeroom laugh out loud, and a little dream began in Melanie's heart - a dream to use words to make people laugh. more
